NFL Odds: Week 8 Betting Props

Plenty of storylines dominated the headlines this week with Terrell Owens working out, Cam Newton continuing to excel, and the “Andrew Luck Sweepstakes” in full swing. As usual, Bovada has turned these headlines into proposition bets.

Here are some of the most interesting prop bets available in Week 8.

Will Cam Newton break records?

Through seven games, Cam Newton has passed for 2,103 yards (putting him on pace for 4,807) and has rushed for seven touchdowns (on pace for 16). Bettors this week can bet on whether or not Cam Newton will break the all-time single-season record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 14 (Yes -120; No -120) or the all-time single-season record for passing yards by a rookie with 3,740 (Yes -200; No +150).

Will anyone bite on Terrell Owens?

Terrell Owens had a workout to prove that he was still healthy enough to play in the NFL, but no pro team scouts came to see it live. Owens hopes that the workout will create enough buzz to get him a job this season. Do you think Owens will play in a game in the 2011 regular season? You can bet on both “Yes” and “No” at -120 at Bovada. The most rumored destination is Chicago, a team still in the hunt that needs help at wide receiver.

Will there be more huge blowouts like New Orleans over Indianapolis?

New Orleans' 62-7 win over Indianapolis was one of the biggest blowouts in the modern era of football. Will we see any more extremely lopsided contests in 2011? The Over-Under for the most points a single team will score from this point forward is set at 51.5, with the “Over” and “Under” both available at -115. The total for the largest margin of victory in any game moving forward is set at 36.5, with the “Over” and “Under” each at -115 again.

Will any team go winless this season?

With Indianapolis and St. Louis both getting blown out last week and Miami blowing a late lead to Denver, all three stayed winless; will any of them stay that way for the duration of the season? Bettors can get a good value on “Yes” at +600 at Bovada, while the “No” is also available at -1000. The Detroit Lions are the only team to ever finish 0-16, doing so back in 2008.
